HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The chief of the Hagerstown Police Department has announced his plans to retire after 26 years of service.

The Herald-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1MpGyGY ) Police Chief Mark Holtzman made the announcement Wednesday. Holtzman says he plans to accept a new job with a different police agency.

Holtzman says he has not set an exact date of when he’ll be leaving.

During his tenure, he served in many roles, including as the director of the Washington County Narcotics Task Force.

Holtzman is also a graduate of the FBI’s National Academy for Law Enforcement Executives.
